Brazilian superstar Neymar has every faith in Unai Emery being a huge success as Arsenal manager.

The 26-year-old played under the Spaniard at Paris Saint-Germain, winning the Ligue 1 title together last season.

Speaking to reporters ahead of Brazil’s friendly with Uruguay on Friday, Neymar was full of praise for his former boss:

Now it’s easy to say because Arsenal are playing really great football.

They are coming from a great run in recent matches and everybody knows he’s a really great coach.

We know about their quality and I was really happy to work with him because he’s a really hard working guy.

He really wanted to coach us and really wanted to study about football.

I think he will bring good things for Arsenal, which is really is a really huge and important club here in England. I wish him luck.

The north Londoners already look a different proposition to the side Arsene Wenger left behind and Neymar’s comments suggest supporters should be excited by Emery’s appointment.
